After my initial response exhorting you to go boating, I took another look at the photogrpah of NWO that you posted. After examining the photo through a form of modified Cheneyian juxtapositional analysis, using a series of pictures taken from the same location over a period of three years, I have to agree with you--something is amiss. And that something, as you so adroitly observe, is a Big Rock. In my opinion, an opinion embedded in an ethos of 21 years of kayaking experience and more than 30 runs on Vallecito, including three of those in one day, No Way Out should not be attempted in a kayak. The possibility of dismemberment or death is simply too great. Anyone from the Front Range, the East Coast, or just about anywhere in the continental U.S. should go to BV or Golden or Ogden instead. Evan, being the good samaritan that you are, I think you are morally responsible for continued updates about the status of this tragic event. Perhaps that rock will dislodge sometime around September? Oh, and remember, there is also that huge Ponderosa that fell across Pick-Up-Sticks.
